It's been 8 or 9 years since I bought something from them, maybe my Kury premium pass. boards, IDK. I had no problems at all with them, but shortly afterward, some did, and they were banned as a vendor from the site, while it was still run by Ray (Big-X).

I figured they were banned when it wouldn’t let me type out their name... we’ll see!

I bought my Vance & Hines Big Shots from them as they had the better price. Was not aware of their history att. The box came in pristine condition - not even one shoe print. Unpacked and looked things over and found a quarter sized dent in the lower chrome cover, close to the bottom. I contacted them and they made a very very big deal about DO NOT SEND THOSE PIPES BACK TO US....:mad: ok, you sold them, I bought them, and they're dented .... They gave me a phone number for a distribution center and the center gave me a number for the factory. The guy at the factory was very helpful, sent me a new lower chrome cover and said to keep the dented one.
I never used the new cover and gave it to my buddy in New Scotland (RBull) as he needed one.
But the attitude of choppers told me they must work out of their basement with no warehouse or inventory.
I adhered to Big X's ban once I knew about it.
Sorry for the Cage-like response :sleep:

Tom had I known your story and that they were banned I probably wouldn’t have used them. It’s too late now, so I’m hoping I come out ok on this one!

Everyone needs to remember, that anything we buy, is choked off in the supply/ demand pipeline due to you-know-what. We recently looked at buying a new sofa, and was told by a bunch of furniture places all said 8-12 weeks for delivery. Places laid off their employees, others opted to sit on their asses and collect that free $600/ week, so why work? And California is one of the hardest hit places. I'm a big drag racing fan, and the absence of John Force Racing's 2 top fuelers and 2 funny cars was noticeable the first 2 races, and just the other day he announced his operations would be suspended for the entire year as he has had to lay off many employees.

Got to remember most "shops" you buy from online are still drop ship operations out of a garage. This can be good as in you get a lower price with their low overhead but bad in the case of having issues with products.

Been using a new app called REVER. Tracks your ride and makes a little video of it.

Interesting idea. Looks like a curvy road.

Glad someone woke this thread up after a month nap. I broke out in an abdominal rash overnight- the only thing I can think I did differently or came into contact with, was I took an Imodium yesterday. For you-know-what.
